Grain Free Almond Flour Chocolate Sugar Cookies — this easy one bowl cookie recipe can be made into cut out shapes or rolled into dough balls! Top with a silky velvet chocolate frosting if you’d like.

Tony and I snuggled in last night to watch the big game and munched on pepper jack cheese cubes, these paleo chocolate sugar cookies and some amazing sprouted grain tortilla chips. It was a hectic weekend for us, and all we wanted to do was relax at home with endless snack options and an amazing Lady Gaga halftime show. (Seriously, it was SOOOO good!)

Before we talk all about these sweetheart cookies with fabulous silky velvet buttercream, I must tell you about a little incident that occurred over the weekend.

Let’s flash back to around 2012 when I was off trying to perfect the absolute best chocolate chip cookie. I was living in Washington D.C. at the time and my entire world outside of work included baking my heart out. It took me months and months to find an accurate and delicious ratio between butter (it had to be browned), brown sugar (a higher ration than white sugar) and of course, chocolate (two types of chips!).
